The DevOps landscape continues to mature as more enterprises continue to infuse agile practices into their existing business infrastructure. DevOps has proven itself as the most promising approach for consistently giving businesses an edge in the market. The arena has also observed a paradigm shift in the use of Docker technology, further helping to drive the adoption of agile and lean practices. According to the recent ‘State of the Cloud Report’ powered by RightScale, Docker usage has increased double fold, an impressive jump from 13 percent to 27 percent.
The adoption of the DevOps ecosystem has been more evident in larger enterprises, compared to their counterpart Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs). The growth trajectory indicates that technologies supporting DevOps toolchain are expected to grow by 21 percent globally by the end of 2020. Chef, Salt, Puppet, and Ansible are some noteworthy configuration tools that companies leverage the most. The toolchains enable continuous integration, deployment, and delivery to drive the DevOps approach successfully. Although, firms were focused on deploying containers over virtual machines in the past, they are now gradually deploying these containers over traditional bare metal servers.
Although the DevOps landscape is poised to thrive, few concerns still plague the adoption of a comprehensive DevOps strategy—security and lack of experience. Enterprises are slowly expanding their know-hows about DevOps, in addition to focusing on activities which assist in enhancing the experience.
